An Unprofessional Preacher

Amos 7:15 (KJV)
And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

The “professional” of Amos’ day, Amaziah, urged him to quit preaching or go somewhere else to do his preaching. He was unhappy with the message, reported him to the king, and in what I am sure was a most unfriendly manner, told him to flee the area. Amos’ response was simple. He was doing what God had called him to do, where God had called him to do it, and therefore would take his instructions from the Lord and continue preaching.
